Mr. Ademola, alongside his wife, Olubowale, is facing a 15-count charge of alleged fraud and abuse of office.

The office of the Attorney General had planned to arraign Mr. Ademola on December 5 but failed to do so because the judge was yet to be served with the originating summons for his trial.

The case is ongoing.
